Adaptive systems usually implement the entire cycle of measurement and data acquisition, signal conditioning and processing as well as process control. Especially, for the design of adaptive signal processing and control algorithms detailed insight into the interaction between the system components is of crucial importance. System level simulations are a suitable way to gain insight and to support algorithm design and test. However, an adequate mathematical representation of the system behavior is needed to take advantage of this method. In the paper a generic methodology for behavioral modelling is introduced. Important steps of the modelling process are described and illustrated by two examples. For a gyro sensor system the combination of different modeling methods is demonstrated. Network modeling and in particular an approach for the construction of network models for magnetic systems is discussed for an electromagnetic switching device.
